September 23 is set to be another great night of boxing, as Anthony “Beast from the East” Yarde steps back into the ring, hungry for redemption. Yarde’s opponent? Fellow Brit Ricky Summers. This fight is part of the Zhilei Zhang vs. Joe Joyce rematch card. The venue? The buzzing OVO Arena, Wembley. This clash will be broadcast live on TNT Sports.
Yarde, who won the hearts of many during his fight with world light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev, is raring to go. He stood toe-to-toe with the champ before his corner put a halt to the action in the eighth round. Even in defeat, Yarde’s toughness shone, proving once again his championship caliber.
On the other side of the ring, Ricky Summers will be waiting. He’s fresh off a victory over Joel McIntyre that crowned him the English light heavyweight champion. The Staffordshire native is no stranger to the thrill of victory or the sting of defeat, having previously come tantalizingly close to securing the English belt.
That’s not all this star-studded night of boxing has to offer. Commonwealth lightweight champion Sam Noakes will be staking his claim on his titles, while super lightweight champ Pierce O’Leary readies for his second title defense. Nottingham’s Ezra Taylor will trade blows with Portsmouth’s Joel McIntyre, promising to be an edge-of-your-seat light heavyweight bout.
Royston Barney-Smith, a former two-time European Amateur champion, will be stepping into the professional ring for the seventh time. Social media rivals Tommy Fletcher and Aloys Jr will also take to the canvas, with their ongoing feud promising to set off sparks.
